  • What is it: Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2) where the violet color is caused by irradiation or impurities of iron which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions.
  • History: The name comes from the Koine Greek ἀμέθυστος amethystos from ἀ- a-, "not" and μεθύσκω methysko / μεθύω methyo, "intoxicate", a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. In Greek mythology, amethyst was rock crystal dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry. Ancient Egyptians used the stone as the representative of the zodiac sign of the goat.
  • Metaphysical Properties: Amethyst is believed to be a very powerful and protective crystal, and is a first choice of many metaphysicians. Used in acient times to recover from both physical addictions as well as addictive relationships, it became known as the “Stone of Sobriety”. A natural stress reliever, Amethyst is said to encourage inner strength.
